2006.20.1 Linebyline: Small Cake and Finely Cut Bread
nanowrimo 2010
small cake and finely cut bread

Signs of civility abound
skirts like clouds of mist all whirling.
My heart lifts at the orchestral sound
and I find my spirit freed, unbound.

The flash of light on polished sterling,
odors, sweet aromas that go to my head,
banners bright in the breeze unfurling,
warmth and courtesy 'round me curling.

There's naught I would have in their stead
gallantry, amenity, the world around me
seen in evidence of no stronger thread
than a small cake and finely cut bread.

Yet another piece which I really like! Thanks for sharing it.

Much of what I write is also found at louderpoetry and my website. If you read anything you enjoy, feel free to copy and/or steal remorselessly...
